SecureMyID wallets

This item appears on page 76 of the March 2012 issue.

Since 2007, all US passports have carried Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips; some credit cards also have them. Unfortunately, these devices also enable unauthorized persons to scan any chips nearby, raising the possibility of identity theft. SecureMyID wallets and organizers contain metal to block scans. Among products are a leather passport case (5½"x3¾"x½", $24.99), a leather mini-wallet (3¼"x45⁄8", $15.95), a men’s nylon trifold wallet (4"x3¼"x½", $29.99) and a ladies’ leather clutch purse (8"x4"x1¼", $39.95). Checks Unlimited (Colorado Springs, CO; 800/210-0468).
